Electric eels generate voltage through long stacks of thin cells that run end-on-end through their bodies. Called electrocytes, these cells create electricity by allowing sodium ions to rush into one end and potassium ions out the other, all at the same time.
The process looks something like a hi-tech sewing machine weaving an emblem onto a garment.
But soon the pattern begins to rise and swell, and a nose, constructed using a bio-ink containing real human cells, grows upwards from the glass, glowing brightly under an ultraviolet light.
‘Squirtable’ Elastic Surgical Glue Seals Wounds In 60 Seconds Emergency Treatments Could Be Transformed, Saving Lives
‘Squirtable’ Elastic Surgical Glue Seals Wounds In 60 Seconds Emergency Treatments Could Be Transformed, Saving Lives – A highly elastic and adhesive surgical glue that quickly seals wounds without the need for common staples or sutures could transform how surgeries are performed. Biomedical engineers from the University of Sydney and the United States collaborated on the development of the potentially life-saving surgical glue, called MeTro.
